503 1/26/2021 8:26:00 PM Spring 1864 Union Message Thanks sometimes games snowball, Let's set it up and just take it slow
502 1/26/2021 6:36:00 PM Spring 1864 Confederate Message Agreed, no hope of the CSA surviving turn 10. Lets call it a Union win by 17.21 on Turn 10.

Congratulations and great game by you. After McDowell's big victory on Turn 1, I never was able to get my head above water! I kept looking for opportunities to strike somewhere but you did a great job of offering me nothing! If it wasn't for the fortunate forced discards and the AoT's poor die rolls, it would have been over even sooner.

In his email, Stephane requested that the winner of the game send him the game info.

I am ready to start our second any time. However, I would also be ok if we wait a week or two. I'll leave that choice to you.

Congratulations again on the game, well played.
501 1/26/2021 6:13:00 PM Spring 1864 Union Play Strategy card as Event #25: 1 / Confederate Railroad Degradation
The Union player may randomly remove one strategy card from the Confederate hand, which is discarded.

Message from Union:
I think with this card play it should be obvious that The US will take VA this turn having the last two card plays.

continue are call it CSA Zero on T10?

Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if they were led by a General. This move is a Corps move and may enter enemy controlled spaces because the SPs are moving as if they are led by a general.

Message from Confederate:
2 SP from ACH (n2) to Burkeville (n2)
482 1/25/2021 8:35:00 PM Fall 1863 Confederate Message After reading the official rules at the BPA FtP PBEM page, it looks like there are penalties for both sides if one player "resigns". The winner does not get any TT points for the round and the loser gets 0 points for the loss instead of 1. So, I am going to make my move. I was more facing the reality that I won't be able to hold out more than 2 turns as opposed to resigning, however since it is an official tournament, it is probably better to just finish it out the right way.
481 1/25/2021 6:53:00 PM Fall 1863 Confederate Message OK, I see it now. I was confused by your correction entry because you wrote "still have 1 SP remaining". That probably was supposed to read "1 MP" and then all makes sense. Well Played.

Ok. I may be able to play some SW cards and survive next turn but surely won't make it past the summer. I'm willing to surrender in the Summer of 1864 if you want to end this game now and start our second game.
480 1/25/2021 5:47:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message that should read NO not ON!

478 1/25/2021 4:46:00 PM Fall 1863 Confederate Message It was a long time coming and a well deserved victory. However, I think you used your 6th MP to attack Richmond, right? If so, I still have a chance to take it back before it is destroyed. Do you agree with that?

Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5.

449 1/24/2021 8:06:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message I believe that the 2 SP on the turn track are a result of the Cav General deaths. When I removed them from the Army display (be right-clicking on the counter and selecting KIA option), it moved the Cav Counter and reduced the Army by 1 SP. I manually corrected the SP count for Army in both cases. Therefore, these SPs on the TT are extra can be removed.

I will do that now.
448 1/23/2021 8:17:00 PM Fall 1863 Union Message why are there 2 SP on the TT? You didn't remove an extra SP from the Army ?
